Betul : The residents of Betul have been demanding an intercity train between Bhopal and Nagpur for a long time, but the railway is not giving any heed to the concerns of the general public as of now.
Passengers face problems
There is no train from Betul to Bhopal till the afternoon. Only two trains are available for three days a week, which include Tri cool express on Friday and Sunday at 04.33am and Andaman Express on Wednesday and Sunday at 5.30pm.
is no other train in the morning for the passengers who want to go to Bhopal from Betul in the mornings.
Dakshin Express leaves Betul at 12.30pm and reaches Bhopal at 5.30pm. No government office related work is possible after 5.30pm in the evening, and also includes wastage of time and money.
And most of the people in Betul have one or the other work meant for Bhopal. Patients from Betul are also referred to Bhopal. Absence of a train with suitable timings leaves Betul residents with no options.
Roadways not in proper conditions: The roadways which connect Bhopal to Betul are not in proper conditions. Nagpur bound four-lane has helped Betul residents to go to the city, but there is no such facility for reaching Bhopal.
Although construction of the four lane for Bhopal has begun, but the old highway has seems unfit.
Because of this going to Nagpur takes just three to four hours by road, but traveling to Bhopal consumes around 6 hours through road transport.
What railway officials say: The Railway officials on this have said that there is no place in Bhopal station for the train to stand. The second option then is to operate the train from Vidisha. In this case two central ministers Nitin Gadkari and Sushma Swaraj along with other MPs can support the move.
Trains for all directions except Bhopal: Trains leave from all directions from Bhopal, except from Bhopal. And the residents of Betul have been demanding an intercity from Bhopal to Betul, but there have been no results.
AB Shuttle’s services till Itarasi, loose timings between many express and Super fast trains and the demand to stop them at Betul have also not been addressed.

    Often we have some TL Entries seemingly in WaitList forever. Usually, the reason for this is that TLMs have already looked at the TL Entry but are not confident enough to Confirm it or are looking for more inputs from the Member regarding the source, etc. And this delay eventually causes...

    This is to address persistent and lingering questions about FM Appointments: . 1. Being an FM is a service. It is NOT supposed to be some kind of "reward" or "medal" to "deserving" members. The ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE of the process is to promptly handle/look into Reports filed by members, which is expected to...
